Beer brand Dos Equis has unveiled its new ‘Most Interesting Man in the World’ in its latest campaign, handsome French actor Augustin Legrand replaces American actor Jonathan Goldsmith who retired from the role earlier this year.

“The new Most Interesting Man is a man of our times, and in this first glimpse, he shares hints of being a resourceful, rough and tumble guy, who remains a jack-of-all-trades hero that one would expect from the man bearing this infamous title,” the Heineken-owned company said in a statement.

Check out the launch spot, from Havas New York, here:

The Dos Equis’s VP of marketing Andrew Katz explained in the press release: “The meaning of ‘interesting’ has evolved over the past decade, and this campaign features a new character and look and feel that opens the door to a world of interesting possibilities for today’s Dos Equis drinker. With the reboot of the campaign, we’re celebrating the good times The Most Interesting Man has with friends wherever he travels, while highlighting our refreshing cerveza. In the coming weeks, fans will have the opportunity to get to know the new character in a uniquely interactive way.”

Havas chief creative officer of the Americas Toygar Bazarkaya said: “It’s the beginning of a new era of interesting. With The Most Interesting Man not just telling us about his adventures, but inviting us to be part of them.”

The October launch will be supported by social integrations on Snapchat, including a national lens available for College Football Game Day, Saturday, October 22.
